Gossip

I heard you name mentioned,
Behind your back,
Bad mouthing you,
Behind you back,
I couldn't bear to listen,
My temper was rising,
I wished to speak,
But held back,
I knew it would be no use,
They'd just turn on me,
This verbal abuse,
This cowardly act,
I wished to stand up,
And tell them this was no way to act,
I sat down and bowed my head,
All I could do was vanish,
So as not to act.

I felt small and all alone,
I wished to cover your back,
I was standing alone,
Ignorant how best to act.
